A former media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, has spoken on the growing popularity of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).
In a series of tweets on Thursday, June 30, Ahmad said in northern states like Gombe, Kastina, and Kano, no one is talking about other candidates, but Obi.
According to him, the LP is getting 75% - 80% in those states.
He substantiated this by saying that a friend of his sent him a direct message stating that Obi is getting not less than 80% in Kaduna.

Speaking further, the former presidential media aide noted that the LP flagbearer does not need to go to the northwest for campaigns since his supporters are already there.
He, therefore, concluded that Obi, with all these, has already won the 2023 presidential election and that he will be declared the winner soon.
"A friend also just DMed me that PO is getting not less than 85% in Kaduna. Like I said he is everywhere in Kano and Katsina, so he doesn’t even have to waste his time going to the northwest for campaign, his soldiers take over the region. An 80% victory is assured!
Tinubu or Peter Obi? Fayose speaks on who to support after dumping Atiku over support for southern presidency
"Let me confess, the name Peter Obi alone is a movement to beat, I was in Kano over the weekend, and to my surprise everywhere is PO, nobody is talking about other candidates anymore and a friend told me that it’s a similar story in Katsina. LP is getting 75% - 80% in those states.
"With this, Peter Obi has already won!"
However, these remarks that may come across like confessions from Ahmad are actually calculated sarcasm against the former Anambra governor.
This aspect of Ahmad's comments was revealed in his tone and laughing emojis which he used after his last tweet: "Everywhere is now PO, Abdullahi! We are so scared."

According to the chieftain, since the ruling APC failed to field its presidential candidates from the southeast region for equity and justice, hence he would give his votes to Obi.
“I will support APC as far as Imo State is concerned but for the presidency, I will support Peter Obi because if he can go out of his way and generated the fervor, the momentum and the favour of the people, he should be encouraged.”
